Love the whole experience !! Love Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.
This is a wonderful trip to drive to the country side of Munich and visit the royal castles. Both castles are worth to visit and are astonishing. The Tour guide, Marcus, did not provide much information about the visited locations. His voice was most of the time low and the sound system at the bus was not very supportive as we were sitting in the last row. Onsite time was not enough at Linderhof Castle. We had around 45 minutes while it requires around 2 hours to see the whole place.
Marcus got us the tickets for both castles and that was very supportive. Upon arrival at Neuschwanstein Castle, I felt Marcus lost his temper and did not respond professionally to my question to confirm some details about departure time. I do not recommend Marcus for future tours.
We had a great day visiting the Linderhof and Neuschwanstein castles, and we had a very informative and experienced tour guide named Sofie and bus driver named Sam. Sofie shared many interesting facts along the way and provided good advice and directions. We had a great experience! The stop in the town of Oberammergau was also nice with souvenir shops and decorated homes.
Great tour, stunning castles and unbelievable country side. The bus is the way to travel total luxury no false advertising here! Both Neuschanstein and Linderhof castles are out of this world really nice, only pity is not being able to photograph the interior but must be seen to appreciate the quality of the workmanship of these buildings. Great tour guide and driver really had a enjoyable day.
Guide was very knowledgeable about Bavarian history and told a lot of fun stories. My only regret was that not sufficient amount of time for Linderhof. Should be 1 hour min. This is one of the worlds most beautiful gardens and no time to explore but around the build. Less time in the city, more time at Linderhof
Ana was an excellent tour guide - fun and informative - gave us lots of tips how the day would go. The tours are timed so you go into the castles at that time. Linderhof is a lead tour and Neuschwanstein is an audio tour. Unfortunately Mary's Bridge is closed at this time. But otherwise the tour is very worth it. A lot of walking up to Neuschwanstein castle - we took the bus up and walked down. Really enjoyed the day!!
Very good tour guide with excellent English, very on top of things and extremelly helpful and kind. Provided all the historical information about the placecs and the castle we were visiting in an organized fashion while we were in route to the different locations. It was about 1 1/2 hours of driving to/from and the rest you spend it in the castles, in the small towns, etc.
Some people complain that you don't spend enough time in the Bavarian towns but that is a very personal thing. I found the time to be just enough and the towns to be gorgeous but small so an hour in the town and you have seen it all.
The bus was awesome same bus that was used by the Bayern Munich soccer team. You get a snack box some chocolates, peanuts, cookies and coffee as well as tow free drinks after that you would need to purchase it but it included beer, etc.. I got my two free drinks on the way back to Munich so we didn't find the issues that other people encountered with the drinks or being charged. Everything is clearly explained at the beginning of the trip and the guides within the castle are included and are great about 30 minutes for each Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.
I really loved this tour and had the most fantastic guide who obviously had a real interest in the subject. The castles themselves were astonishing. Be aware that it is a real tour for Linderhof and an audio tour for Neuschwanstein which honestly didn't bother us, we would have loved free roam of the castles or at least be able to take photos but neither are allowed.
This was truly the highlight of our trip, even the long coach ride there was beautiful and we had the best time.
What an excellent day trip. I have wanted to visit Neuschwanstein Castle since early childhood. The visit was everything that I always dreamed it would be. Linderhof Castle was awesome as well. This trip was worth every Euro. I am a very happy consumer.
Linderhof is definitely the highlight of this trip, small but exquisite. Neuschwanstein is a bit over-rated in comparison. Our tour guide Ana is friendly, thnings are well organised
Linderhof was beautiful! Neuschwanstein was great too, but was a lot of hard walking up a steep grade hill. My legs were aching for days afterwards.
This was a great tour to see as much of Bavaria as possible in one day. Linderhof Castle was incredible and the guide was really passionate about the story behind it, which made it even more fascinating. Our coach was lovely and comfortable, and the tour guide for the day, Francesca, was lovely and very knowledgeable and fun. Great tour!
Very busy tour although well organised. Linderhof was marvellous and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Neuschwanstein was good but Lindenhof tended to over shine it. Glad we booked prior to the visit as when we arrived at Neuschwanstein the queues for tickets were waiting for 6pm slots and we were there at 3:15 for our pre booked slot. Well worth pre booking before you go. Very good helpful guide.
I like the tour guide, she is very jovial and informative, she makes the journey in the bus fun with jokes and stories of the places that we are visiting. Both castles Linderhoff and Neuschwanstein are worth a visit. I truly enjoy the day tour.
It's a long day outside the city, but well worth it. Uta, our tour guide, was fantastic. She was with us throughout the day making sure we always knew where we were going and when. Uta was also very informative and fun.
The first stop is Linderhof - lovely building and grounds. You are given a ticket with the time and take a 25 minute tour with a guide from Linderhof. We then had about 30 minutes to tour the grounds or do a little hiking on our own before getting back on the bus. Oberammergau is a lovely small Bavarian village. We had 30 minutes on our own to explore. Uta gave us a great history of the town before we got off the bus.
Last stop - Neuschwanstein. Uta gave us our tickets and gave us the details on how to get up to the castle - and how long each way would take. We had about 2 1/2 hours before our tour, so we had lunch - there are several restaurants and kioks to get food. Due to the oppressive heat, we took the bus up to the castle. Note: there is a fee for the bus and you will have to wait on line about 45 min on line for us on a hot August day. The views from the top of the mountain are gorgeous. The tour of the castle was headsets and guide and lasted 25 minutes. We walked down the hill about 30 minute walk and boarded the bus back to Munich.
A lovely day in Bavaria - great for adults and children.
My daughter and I took this tour together. It is a large group tour on a double decker bus - but it was well organised. We both enjoyed visiting the Linderhof Castle the first castle you visit - the gardens and castle itself are beautiful! The drive through the countryside was really nice - nicer than we expected it to be. My daughter has wanted to visit Neuschwanstein Castle or a long time - the purpose of us taking this tour. Unfortunately, we were both disappointed when we saw this castle - not sure why - it just didn't meet our expectations after seeing it in so many pictures. This second castle is located high on a hill and the tour begins by the bus dropping everyone off at the bottom where there are a couple of options for lunch pay own. There are 3 options to get to the top to view the castle - walk would not recommend this - all up hill, take a shuttle bus pay own, but cheap or take a horse and carriage ride would not recommend - large lines and those poor horses struggled to take people up the hill. We took the shuttle bus up and walked down - which turned out well. Another nice part of the tour was we visited a little village where we got free time to walk around. The village was so quaint and the souvenir shops specialised in selling cuckoo clocks and other novel items. I would recommend this tour if only just to see Linderhof Castle, the countryside and the little village.
This tour takes you by comfortable coach through the Bavarian countryside to Neuschwanstein, Linderhof, and Oberammergau. Snacks mostly candy are provided. The tour guide gives more of the history of Bavaria than you can absorb in one listen.
When you reach Neuschwanstein or Linderhof, you take a tour with the guides for that specific castle. The Viator tour guide will provide you with tickets. At Oberammergau, you're turned loose for an hour of shopping in the touristy downtown. You can see the theater where the passion play is held,from the outside only.
The coach is a relaxed and comfortable way to reach remote but must-see destinations in Bavaria.
Elizabeth gave a great tour to the castles and kept everything on schedule and was full of information. Linderhof is the small hunting palace of the eccentric King Ludwig II. It was beautiful and the inside tour was short but informative. Very nice walk around the grounds.
Short stop at Oberammergau for cappuccino and apple strudel was fun and a nice break.
Neuschwanstein Castle was beyond imagination. The city where you start was very busy and it is a hike to the castle. We took the bus up to the bridge and then hiked up above Mary's bridge. The bridge will be closed for repair soon.
Alexander did a great job driving thru the small streets.
A good guided tour. An additional plus when our tour guide Maria knows the way to hike up to the bridge to snap picture of the castle from it. Must have stamina for this short hike. Linderhof was nice too plus the Obermagau stop for shopping is a good one.
We had a great trip, everything was super punctual and on time. Picked up from the Karsdat department store in Munich and left promptly at 8.30, Lindenhof was first and even though it was a hot day, the air conditioned bus was a nice reprieve. A little ice cream and coffeebreak in Oberammergau, I would suggest getting your touristy German souvenirs here, they were much cheaper than those in Munich and better quality. Especially the beer steins. Also tax free!
Then off to Neuschwanstein. First Lunch, We chose to walk up the hill even though it was blistering hot. Everyone else was in t-shirts and shorts, and here I am as the girl who chose to wear woollen skirts and a corset with a long haired wig prancing around as Sleeping Beauty to visit the sleeping Beauty castle.
Great fun though! Spend the time going up to Mary's Bridge to take photos.
The interior of Linderhof is more impressive than Neuschwanstein, but they both have their charms.
Then ran for the bus so we can get home. Even with traffic we got back at around 7pm in Munich. Great day.
We liked this tour very much! Our tour guide was great! Very funny and knowledgable. We preferred Linderhof over Neuschwanstein. The trek up to Neuschwanstein was pretty tiring but all in all an amazing fun-filled day.
A great trip! The first castle Linderhof was really impressive and it wasn't even the main event. Guided tours in English around both castles, which were very informative. Views in and around Neuschwenstein were incredible, worth the walk over to the bridge to see the castle in all its glory. Lovely proposal spot as well!
Everything is great. Our driver Thomas is awesome his driving is the smoothest I've seen. Antje, our guide, is also very knowledgeable about the castles and Bavarian fields. The only down side is that we spent little time at Linderhof, which I found is extremely exquisite.
First off, the bus ride was great. Very comfortable seats with adequate leg room. The pick-up/drop-off could not be more convenient.
First Stop: Linderhof -- I really enjoyed Linderhof, a small palace set in the Bavarian Alps, but I did not have time to explore much of the grounds and the smaller houses/buildings on the grounds due to time restraints.
Second Stop: Oberammergau -- We had 30 minutes to look around this quintessential Bavarian town. It was not enough time. I'd suggest getting rid of this stop altogether and adding time to Linderhof.
Third/Final Stop: Neuschwanstein -- It's amazing. We had to eat in a little bit of a rushed manner street food vs. a sitdown restaurant to make sure we got up to the castle on time, but the sight of that castle was well worth it.
Overall, good trip for the price, but it could be better by extending the day 1-2 hours or by eliminating Oberammergau.
Great experience, must do when u are in Munich. Was worried initially that Linderhoff was not worth the time visiting, but am now glad i was wrong. Both castles have totally different style and didn't feel bored at all. Take the shuttle to Neuschwanstein castle from the lunch place or you won't have enough 'extra' time to enjoy the castle.
